    Walked in the room the other day to a surprise, thought i'd share One of the many reasons i don't keep them in my display, they live in the fuge section of my sump No power heads, its flow is from a spray bar feed from a mj1200 in my return section but i still need to modify the drain screen a bit (there's a small gap they can still squeeze through) tiny holes on top of the spray bar provide the surface agitation and larger holes point forward and down keep the water moving pretty good.

    I designed a new CA reactor, the prototype is fabricated, now I need a volunteer who is familiar with traditional calcium reactor, please contact me if you are interested and accept the terms as following: 1. the product patent is submitted but not approved yet. the tester is willing to have a confidential agreement with me and not release any design detail to the third party until it is released by inventor. 2. the tester is familiar with traditional calcium reactor and have a reactor at a running aquarium to make the comparison. 3. the tester has a sump and enough space in the cabinet (less footprint than traditional ca reactor) 4. the tester is willing to document the detail results, data, perform frequent chemical tests 5. the tester is willing to communicate with me for test progress and provide the updates in time. additional requirements but not necessary: 1. close to my home address, beaverton 97229 area 2. I can visit the testing tank or testing environment. what I will provide: - the prototype and necessary accessories, tester can keep the prototype after the testing if desired - testing kits - reactor media pro and cons of the design Pros: - small foot print, space saver - easy to adjust - no concern on media debris - more tolerant to oscillation of CO2 pressure, may not require an expensive regulator ( this needs to be tested) Cons: - need to position higher than aquarium water level or sump water level - could waste 2-5% CO2 (this needs to be tested, may not be the case due to the new diffuser design) - two to three small pumps will be required rather than a big recirculation pump comparing to the traditional design. More spots will be taken for APEX It is not first come first service thing, I will leave this ad for a week and pick a tester who meets most above requirements. It is fun to test the new toy, isn't it? without you guys help, OceanRevive couldn't starts up, i promise i will offer a big discount to local club members if this product can be commercialized. Bo

    Anyone notice some sps will grow fast but only from certain branches/spots? I would assume every single polyp have same growth potential on the same colony assuming good water flow and evenly lit. Got some sort of purple stag.. It only grows new branches from only 2 spots while the other branches don't seem to grow. Also have a green slimer which had a branch already cut off when I got it. It seems to regrow from that cut spot very fast. I had to move it to a different location and yet only to spot grows fast. Last week I drop something and broke off the fast growing branch. It had already heal up and start growing fast from same spot. However, some sps like bird's nest just grow everywhere evenly. I just find these kind of growth patterns intriguing.

    There's a ton of different things it could be. How about full parameters list? What's your nitrate/phosphate at?

    So I wasn't going to get fish before my trip to San Diego but found a deal on Craigslist. They were asking $60 with no pics of the fish. I decided to try my luck and drove out to aloha to get them this morning. I get there and all 3 fish are over 15". I felt bad and even though they were asking $60 I feel like I stole them and gave them an extra $20. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
